i call the invisible religions. lessons to teach the world. tavis: how do this to stand in their version religions play themselves out? >> yes, a very good question. look at somalia. look at more tanya. -- and more tanya -- look at another country. we would have thought africa is immune. in many ways, african religions, the world views, the perceptions have managed. the extremism in parts of the world, costing billions of lives, literally, in is time to remind africans of some of the ways of managing and also to tell the world. if that happens in other parts of the world, it affects africa sooner or later. tavis: do i detect in what you just said a critique of africa and being complicit in some of this stuff? >> of course. i am not pretending to write about africa in general. what is useful to the coming generations and the world. inevitably, and african- americans. we must also come to terms with our past and stop romanticizing certain features, including activities of africans, said that is just one of the things. tavis: yes. to the point you made a moment ago, i am al
. >> but it's made bill o'reilly take the position that christianity is not a religion. >> that's awesome >> bill: in what sense. >> o'reilly said a christmas tree but it's a sort of a christmas symbol but christianity is not a religion. it's a philosophy. >> really? >> he actually said this. if you don't understand that christianity is not a religion you are a dummy. it was almost like o'reilly was channelling stephen colbert like a drunk stephen colbert. if you haven't caught that segment, it was breath-taking. >> bill: it came up to me again. we had our white house correspondents association, the first party of the year first christmas party, wasn't even in december. they had it on the 29th of november. and so, you know it was awkward because i walked in, and i said like, merry christmas to somebody. and they said, happy holidays. and then i said happy holidays to somebody and they said, no, you can say merry christmas to me. i am thinking jesus. get off. careful here. >> happeny holidays? they are judging you? you know, the war on christmas thing,
holiday trees instead. >> i am going to guess father john religion contributor has thoughts on this. >> am i angry, am i upset? >> i am not feeling angry from you. >> the reason i am not angry is? th that yes, i think it's silly. it's out of place for people to dedicate so much energy to try to get rid of christmas scenes like this. the good news is when christianity has been persecuted, when it has been outlawed, when people have died for their faith, it hasn't gone away. everybody has an opportunity to make sure their faith does not go away in this christmas season. to live that faith as a family, as a community. what should we do about these i think very small percentage of people who are working to try to get rid of these public expressions of faith? i think we should speak up. that's why i am doing it. that's why i think it's important we have these stories to show what they are trying to do without losing the peace. if our christmas is going to be all about getting a upset at people trying to take away christmas that's silly too. >>s are mu rasmussen did a poll how people say happy h
by a great national creed. not by ethnicity, not by blood, not by religion. our national creed is an aspirational narratives that it does not matter where you came from, it matters where you are going. you can do great things. the only way that is true is if you have access to a high quality education. if it ever becomes the case as it is increasingly now, i can look a year is a code and tell whether you are going to get a good education, then the social fabric of this country has no chance to hold together. we will be put one against the other, those of our people and those who are not. kosor employable and those who are not. i can assure you that the sense that you might not be able to control your circumstances at birth but you can control your response to your circumstances. that will no longer be the way that americans think about themselves or about it other. that gives way to end the -- wauy to envy and entitlement. at the core, the real problem for us in national security is not the competitiveness abroad or institutions of national security but this great national narr
a religion. where did the christmas tree come from anyway? >> it came from slavac traditions. early christians were dead set against them. they were pagan trees. then he brings out and atheist to have a fight with him. >> you're an atheist. that's fine. i don't look down on you. >> thank you. >> if you want to be one we're in america be it. why you are messing around with my tradition christmas just leave it alone you and your periband of fascists. >> you called me a fascist. i'm a patriot sir who has taken the crazyette notion that everybody in the country is equal and the government has to treat everybody fairly. that's fascism. >> you said banish christmas trees. >> i did not say that. >> do you know how touchy they get if you mention fascist in the right wing. o'reilly throws it around like nobody's business. let's go to the facts on this so-called christmas tree. let them over whom the fires of hell are imminent: >> do you understand that? calling the pagan tree a christmas tree, bill o'reilly, you might burn in hell. we're not done. i want to give credit to a great point. if b
, pennsylvania, its first female leader in 150 years. dr. callahan is a religion scholar who received her bachelor of arts in religion ratcliff clem, and doctor of philosophy in religion from princeton university. a native of gary, west virginia, and resident of philadelphia, pennsylvania, dr. callahan has been publicly preaching since the age of 19. she is noted for her dynamic preaching and teaching gifts and as is minister who plays a major role in shaping the future of the african-american church. she is the mother of 2-month-old anabel, bella. reverend callahan's character is captured in her favorite scripture, psalm 27:4. one thing i desired of the lord that i shall seek, that i may dwell in the house of the lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the lord and to seek god in god's temple. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the thisme gentlelady has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman seek recognition? the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> yesterday we had an energy and commerce health subcommittee hearing. we heard from private secto
design and other theories, do it in religion class. and the important part with rubio is while he does seem to be tempering his first line now with mike allen yesterday after he got a lot of criticism for it he still believes fundamentally that you should teach creationism alongside evolution in classes. that's really where this comes from. his history when he was in florida as a state house speaker was a huge fight over evolution education in florida. he came down on the side of the creationists saying they should be able to teach that in school. a reasonable alternative to evolution. whether or not rubio thinks the earth is 4 billion years old he also believes some of the nonscientific theories should be taught. >> people should be able to teach the opposite alongside of evolution and alongside of science in public schools. he's saying in public schools. in other words -- is the same position as rick santorum, correct? >> actually, same position as rick santorum, chris christie has said this. >> bill: has he real
violating his first amendment rights of freedom of religion. i want to bring in our legal analyst joey jackson in the studio with me. >> hello, brooke. >> the obvious question is did the judge violate his rights reportedly it's actually legal? >> first of all, most of my clients, brooke, would love to be sentenced to ten years of church instead of jail. >> right. >> now, on that basis, knowing that and understanding that, if the defendant consented to the sentence, it's not a violation of the defendant's rights. if the defendant did not, it becomes problematic. here's why. first amendment, separation between church and state. we can establish a religion of our choosing, and practice a religion of our choosing. as a result of that separation, a judge and court cannot impose on you you have to go to any church at all irrespective of your faith. >> can the aclu step in? >> fwo problems. one, the issue of consent. the second is however a very technical issue, brooke. and that is standing. the person who sues has to be aggrieved, has to be affected, has to be damaged by the suit. and if the
in any way is an establishment of religion. there is no officially supported secretary or denomination in the manner, this is not in any way an endorsement of any particular religion or any religious denomination. in short the first amendment as originally written had nothing to do with the city sign. indeed, for the first 175 years of our constitutional history, no one would have read the first amendment in this way. they would have -- any way that would have prevented this seal or sign. mr. speaker, in this very room in which i stand, this very chamber, right over my right-hand shoulder is a sign that says in god we trust. the rotunda in the capitol, a chapel that's been in use since 1955 as a place where members go to pray for divine guidance in debating the issues of the day. a stained glass window there shows president george washington kneeling in prayer and the words of saum 16:1 surround him, preserve me, o god, for in thee i put my trust. and the holy bible rests on that altar. i'll grant you, the first amendment has been badly interpreted by the u.s. supreme court, and the 10

[laughter] he was amazed when i told him it was a noble ideal. as inspiring as our examples in the u.s. may be, i think we all it to the chinese reformers -- owe to the chinese reformers to familiarize them with other possibilities. prior to the financial crisis of 2008 and still to some degree today, many chinese reformers have focused chiefly on the u.s. to the exclusion of other models, drawn by our power as much as our ideals and ideas. i think it is more in power when to our chinese friends -- empowering to our chinese friends to lay out a broader array of possibilities. our chinese friends can see a range of possibilities and see what our universal ideals in promoting human dignity in a range of human institutional designed to get us there so they can craft something that is true to those ideals, but reflective of chinese society. just by way of example, six year

to figure out, is this salary? [laughter] is it religion? is it politics, is it sex? what is it? he leans across the table and says, professor alford, this separation of powers business, separation of powers, you don't really believe it, do you? [laughter] he was rather amazed when i told him i thought it was a noble ideal. anyways, as aspiring as our example in the u.s. may be, i also think we owe it to the chinese and chinese reformers in particular to encourage them to familiarize themselves with an even broader range of hostilities. wonderfully with a conference that was referred to. prior to the financial crisis of 2008 but still to some degree today, many chinese reformers have tended to focus chiefly on the u.s. often to the exclusion of other models, drawn no doubt as much by our power as our ideals and ideas. i personally think it's more empowering to our chinese friends both politically and conceptually for us to lay out every broad array of possibilities. our chinese friends can see a range of possibilities, can see what our universal ideals about promoting human dignity in a r

by all people, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or gender. over the course of the past 20 months, the aside regime has unleashed a barrage of unspeakable -- assad regime has unleashed a barrage of unspeakable terror across the country. more than 40,000 syrians have been killed, countless have been injured. refugees have surged into neighboring turkey, jordan, lebanon, and iraq, taxing the limits of those countries. assad's escalation of violence has reached a point where fighter jets have been used to kill civilians. it is hard to comprehend that happening in any country. that is what has played out. this regime's shocking capacity for wide spread terror may only grow as we see reports of chemical weapons. international institutions have largely remained on the sidelines, held hostage by the reprehensible policies of the russian and chinese governments. the administration was right to initially work through the united nations. but due to russian and chinese intransigence, the syrian suffering has continued. ambassador ford has led the charge in coordinating humanitarian assistanc
